To the Editor:
I would like to take this opportunity to show my support for Dave DeRose as a Moffat County Commissioner.
I have lived in Craig for more than 30 years and have known Dave for the past 20. I had the opportunity to serve with Dave on the Craig City Council for 8 years and worked with him side by side. I can honestly say that Dave cares for Craig and Moffat County and his interests will benefit our County. Dave will devote his time to make sure he represents Moffat County in a way that will benefit our County.
As Mayor of Craig and as a Member of the Craig City Council I have seen him in action as a public official. Dave committed his time and effort to serve the citizens of Craig. Dave and I didn’t agree on everything but he is the type of guy that allowed us to work through our differences. He was open minded and willing to listen to me and others and we could then come to the right conclusion.
Some folks tell me that Dave is arrogant, but he is not. I often times believe that arrogance and confidence are mistaken for each other. Dave is the type of person that is willing to stand up for what he believes and is willing to do what’s best for Moffat County and the individuals that live here.
I would ask that you the citizens of Moffat County join with me and vote for Dave DeRose in the General Election in November.
